Issued on behalf of the Trufelli family, owners of Barry’s Amusements, Portrush.

Since October 2019, the Trufelli family has sought to sell Barry’s Amusements as a going concern.

This has been an intensive process which has been hindered by the Covid pandemic and the resulting economic conditions.

As we return to a more favourable economic environment, our intention is to re-market the business for sale.

Whilst our hope is that we will be able to sell the business as a going concern, we recognise that it may not be possible to find a suitable purchaser.

As a result, we have appointed Savills and Philip Tweedie & Company to market the site as both a going concern and a development opportunity. 

Barry’s continues to remain closed in line with Covid restrictions and will not re-open until the sale process has concluded.

Opening Times

We are open on selected days in April and May. We are then open everyday during June, July and August.
